Library support during the COVID-19 outbreak

Even though the Library building is closed, many resources and services are still available online via the portal and library catalogue.

Additional online content

Many publishers and book/journal suppliers have temporarily opened up additional content during this period. We have put together a library guide which lists this additional content available: Please note that not all of the additional content is in the library catalogue. Please use both the catalogue and this guide to search for resources.

We will continue to add additional temporary content to this guide as it becomes available.


VitalSource has opened up its E-Textbooks Collection for University of Stirling students until the end of June. Students may access up to 7 e-textbooks from the collection by registering for an account – see

Help and support

Many of the usual help and support services are still available:

Library Subject Guides  –  help with finding information

Referencing guide– help with referencing

Make an appointment with your Librarian – You can still book an appointment and we will try to meet via Microsoft Teams. Go to your Library Subject Guide and click the Book an Appointment button.

Library Enquiries: As always your enquiry will be directed to your librarian or other appropriate member of staff.
